Food Trucks Help with School Fundraisers

At schools across Orange County, times are tough for extracurricular activities. At San Clemente High School, a booster group is coming to the rescue of the cash-starved instrumental music program by making the campus parking lot the happening place to dine on Monday nights.

"Food Truck Mondays" is taking hold at 700 Avenida Pico, where from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m., gourmet food trucks set up shop. Curbside Bites, the trucks' booking agency, has been sending trucks to the campus each week since Sept. 17. SCHS receives $35 for each truck to benefit the Triton Music and Arts Club.

"We've had six (trucks) each Monday," said MariAnne Ridsdale, a parent who organizes the event. "They've been received well. The trucks are happy. The people who come are happy. Everyone is having a good time."
